The smart cutters and choppers these days are using ceramic knives because they stay so sharp for so long, and who remembers to have their knives sharpened? Ours measure 7" long over all, with a deep aqua handle, a 3" blade and a sheath. Don't go into the kitchen without one. Slice, dice, chop and mince, and forget about sharpening. Like you always do.
Let's cut to the chase here -- buy these the first time you read this, or they're going to be gone! There aren't that many of these flexible chopping mats, and the versatile 15" x 12" x 0.024" thick mats are not only ideal for small kitchens where every inch counts, they're great for any kitchen, and for cookouts, camping and picnics. Our each is a set of (2) of the translucent Euro-look mats that protect countertops from sharp knives and fresh-from-the-oven cookies, and protect food from outdoor surfaces. They can be lifted and slightly folded to funnel chopped food neatly into a pot. They're dishwasher safe, and roll up for portage or storage.
Four fine funnels, a fantastic fare. Sturdy plastic, the biggest is 4-1/8" dia at the mouth, with a 1/2" dia spout, the smallest has a 1-7/8" dia mouth, 1/4" spout. The other (2) are in between. Frankly, it's freaky fun flowing fluids from four funnels!
Our each is a pair of textured, ambidextrous, black or red silicone gloves for taking the lasagna out of the oven. Size small to lesser-medium (“Billy-size,” here at the home office), they’re heat-resistant to 425 degrees. Measure 10” from index fingertip to wrist, and have a small hole at the top of the wrist for adding a hook or loop to hang them by. Also dandy for opening stubborn jars. (And no, you don’t have to reserve them for just lasagna--gloves don’t know what they’re grabbing.)
A lovely mini-funnel, made for pouring Dad's special medicine into a hip flask, but just dandy for filling salt and pepper shakers or anything else with a little yap. Stainless steel with a 1-3/8" ID intake mouth and a 5/16" ID outlet. 1-7/8" tall OA.
Call it the fat-free oven mat. It's a 14-5/8" square grid, with 3/16" mesh, coated with PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene), a standard non-stick surface whose name you'd recognize. The manufacturer, Home Solutions®, recommends it for pizza, chicken nuggets, oven fries, rolls, baguettes, fish sticks and anything else you want to cook crispy on an oven rack.
Our hand-held knife and scissors sharpener has a pair of tungsten carbide heads pre-set at the correct angle for keeping an edge on things. Just rest the blade in the notch and pull. Pistol-grip style with a guard, in black plastic. Measures 6" x 5/8" wide, with reversible and replaceable carbide cutting heads.
Mats-R-Us, and we’ll prove it with this 3-piece set of flexible cooking mats, including a 15" x 12" white plastic, flexible chopping mat; a 13" x 15-1/2" black plastic (PTFE) grill mat to keep smaller items from falling onto the coals; and our fave, a 14-1/2" square crispy cooker that prevents frozen pizza soggification, among other things.
If the Tin Man had been plastic, this would have been his lid, and he'd have been rust-free. Our giant red-plastic funnel is 9-3/4" dia with a 3-1/8" long x 15/16" ID neck. Just under 10" tall top to bottom. Hang it by the little tab with a hole on the top edge. Buy (3), get a tennis ball, and run the biggest shell game in town.
